  • Mr. Fowler,

  • Nuview Bridge Early College High School
  • 30401 Reservoir Ave
  • Nuevo, CA 92567
  • Dear Mr. Fowler:
  • I am interested in applying for a job as an AVID tutor at Nuview Bridge Early College High School.
  • I am currently a senior at Heritage High School. I have been in the AVID program for the last five years and have found it to be very successful both for me and my peers. I believe it has helped me strive to do my best in all my classes. It has certainly helped me maintain my 3.9 G.P.A. I have experience working as a peer tutor in other AVID classes and experience teaching Sunday School at my church. I am a dependable and mature young man who can work with many types of people.
  • I have heard great things about your AVID program from friends of mine. I would love to work at a California Distinguished School as an AVID tutor. I hope you decide that you can use an employee like me in your AVID program. Please call me for an interview. My home phone number is (951) 928 – 8498. Thank you in advance for considering me for the position. I look forward to hearing from you.
  • Sincerely,
  • John Q. Student
